Robbie Ray wasn't at his best on Sunday, allowing four runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Phillies.
The left-hander punched out seven on the day while issuing four free passes. It was the long ball that did him in on Sunday, with Aaron Altherr and Maikel Franco each clubbing homers against him. Ray had been pitching out of his mind lately, with a 5-0 record and 0.24 ERA over his last five starts, so something had to give eventually. He'll bring an oustanding 2.87 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 114/39 K/BB ratio into a rematch against these same Phillies in Arizona on Saturday. Jun 18 - 6:34 PM

Robbie Ray allowed just three hits and four hits with 12 strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a win against the Brewers on Sunday, improving to 7-3.

Ray has ripped off five consecutive victories while striking out 10 or more in each of his past three outings. After starting out 2-3 with a 4.57 ERA over his first eight starts, Ray has posted a 5-0 record with a 0.24 ERA over his past five assignments. Not only has he emerged as a solid fantasy option, he has been producing like a Top 5 option over the past month.
Jun 11 - 9:16 PM

Robbie Ray allowed one earned run, three hits and two walks while striking out 11 batters over 6 2/3 innings in a win Tuesday against the Padres.

Ray threw 67 of his 108 pitches for strikes, lowering his ERA for the fourth consecutive outing. He is now 4-0 with a microscopic 0.30 ERA over his past four showings while yielding 11 hits and five walks with 36 strikeouts over his past 30 1/3 innings. He'll look to keep the hot streak going in his next scheduled outing Sunday against Milwaukee.
Jun 7 - 1:54 AM

Robbie Ray notched his first career complete game and shutout Tuesday in a 3-0 victory over the Pirates.

Ray was simply brilliant, allowing just four hits and no walks while piling up 10 strikeouts. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo elected to send the left-hander back out for the ninth even though he'd already thrown 106 pitches, and Ray rewarded the skipper's faith by breezing through the final frame on nine pitches. It's the first time in Ray's career that he didn't walk a batter in back-to-back starts. He hasn't given up a run over his last three outings, has permitted just eight hits over that stretch and boasts a 27/3 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings. Ray is on a roll and will try to keep it up on Sunday in Miami.
May 30 - 10:05 PM

Robbie Ray struck out nine Brewers over seven scoreless innings as the Diamondbacks shut out the Crew 4-0 on Thursday.

Not to be overshadowed by teammate Zack Greinke, Ray reminded everyone Thursday that he's a talented member of the rotation, too. The Brewers were able to muster just two singles off Ray over his seven innings, and the southpaw didn't issue a free pass all night. It was the second consecutive start in which he's left without giving up a run, lowering his ERA to 3.45 with a 1.20 WHIP through 10 starts overall. Ray will try to keep the shutout streak going Tuesday against the Pirates.
May 25 - 11:54 PM

Robbie Ray allowed just two hits and three walks over 7 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out six batters in a win Saturday against the Padres.

The southpaw is 3-3 with a 3.91 ERA and 1.32 WHIP overall on the season, striking out 65 batters over 53 innings. He has been especially tough against divisional opponents, going 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA in six starts against NL West foes. Ray has recorded at least six strikeouts in eight of his nine outings and that's his biggest contribution for fantasy owners.
May 21 - 4:37 AM

Robbie Ray struggled in Sunday's 10-inning loss to the Pirates, surrendering four runs on six hits over four innings while taking a no-decision.

Ray struck out two and walked three in what was a less-than-inspiring performance. Three of the four runs on his line scored in the third inning when he surrendered a solo home run to Andrew McCutchen and a two-run dinger to Josh Bell. He has turned in a wobbly season, pitching to a 4.57 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 59/26 K/BB ratio in eight starts (45 1/3 inning). The strikeouts are great, but until he can find some level of consistency, he will remain a maddening fantasy own. A road start against the Padres shows next on his schedule.
May 14 - 8:21 PM

Robbie Ray allowed five earned runs, five hits and five walks with eight strikeouts over five innings in a loss against the Tigers on Tuesday.

Ray tossed just 56 of his 98 pitches for strikes in a forgettable outing, although the southpaw did salvage the stat line with another high strikeout total. He has recorded at least six punchouts in each of his seven outings, totaling 57 strikeouts in just 41 1/3 innings.
May 10 - 3:08 AM

Robbie Ray took a loss despite striking out 10 batters and allowing just two runs in six innings to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He surrendered four hits and one walk in the contest. Unfortunately his teammates couldn't generate any offense against Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez. Ray falls to 2-2 with a 3.47 ERA and an amazing 49 strikeouts in 36 1/3 innings. His next start will come Tuesday at home in an interleague matchup against the Tigers.
May 3 - 10:36 PM

Robbie Ray gave up three runs in 6 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Rockies.

It was a pretty typical outing for Ray; he struck out nine, but he also walked three. In five starts, he has a 39/17 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings. He'll have to cut down some on the walks to be of much use in WHIP and ERA>
Apr 29 - 2:45 AM

Robbie Ray wasn't very good Saturday, allowing five runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings, but he still earned the win against the Dodgers.

Such is the nature of the win statistic, which awarded Ray for getting through five innings and being only slightly less bad than Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda on this day. Ray gave up a leadoff homer to Kike Hernandez among his nine hits allowed, and he also walked two while whiffing six. The win, deserving or otherwise, improved Ray to 2-0 on the year with a 3.42 ERA. He'll have a good shot at remaining undefeated when the D'backs face the Padres on Thursday.
Apr 23 - 1:34 AM

Robbie Ray held the Dodgers to two runs -- one earned -- and struck out 10 in six innings Monday.

Ray walked four and gave up a homer, but after pitching out of trouble the first two innings, he was pretty clean over the final four. After three starts, Ray has a 1.96 ERA, 24 strikeouts and 12 walks in 18 1/3 innings. He'll keep racking up the K's, but the walks are going to catch up to him somewhat.
Apr 18 - 2:02 AM

Robbie Ray struck out eight over 6 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the Giants on Tuesday.

Ray walked five and gave up four hits, but all of those hits were singles. It helped that he was facing a Giants lineup with Aaron Hill batting cleanup; Buster Posey, Denard Span and Brandon Crawford were all absent. Ray has the stuff to retire the better hitters, but we'll still have to wait and see if he can do it consistently this year.
Apr 12 - 1:47 AM

Robbie Ray allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Thursday.

Ray would have wound up with a win if he could have gotten one more out in the sixth, but he was pulled after a walk and an RBI double with two outs. The Diamondbacks were down 3-2 at that point, but they came back with four in the bottom of the sixth and won 9-3.
Apr 7 - 1:52 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered three runs in four innings against the Indians in Friday's Cactus League loss.

He allowed only three hits but two of them sailed over the fence. He struck out five batters and walked two. Ray is often mentioned as a sleeper candidate because of his massive strikeout rate last season but his spring training results have been underwhelming. He will leave camp with a 5.11 ERA after seven starts. He tallied 27 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings. He made 32 starts for the Diamondbacks in 2016, finishing with an 8-15 record, a 4.90 ERA and an amazing 218 strikeouts in just 174 1/3 innings.
